Police Academy: The Animated Series

Show Summary

Based on the notoriously popular Police Academy movies, this show chronologically takes place between the fourth and fifth film.

Twelve characters are re-created for this animated version, including a team of Academy graduates led by Carey Mahoney, a likeable rogue bachelor boy, who unconsciously -- and consistently -- does his best to make life miserable for Captain Harris and his knucklehead assistant Sgt. Proctor.

Mahoney's friends include the aptly named Moses Hightower, walking sound effects machine Larvell Jones, trigger-happy Eugene Tackleberry, sweet & timid Laverne Hooks, tough-as-nails Debbie Callahan, larger-than-life House, and the bread-&-butter duo of reformed gang member Zed and his best buddy, Sweetchuck.

Eric Lassard is the highly-respected (albeit dreamy) Commandant, and Academy newcomer The Professor is also on hand, stocking our crime-fighting heroes with an endless supply of wacky gadgets as they combat a motley crew of recurring villains such as Numbskull, The Claw, Mr. Sleaze, Lockjaw, and the ever-elusive Kingpin.

Each episode is followed by a valuable safety tip for younger viewers.

The lyrics of the Police Academy rap theme song -- as performed by the Fat Boys -- are as follows.

Come on Come on Stick Stick Stick Stick 'em! {Jones' siren sound effects} Here they come! Yeah!


They fight for justice They stand up for the truth They save us from the peril Of a cowardly crew

To protect the rights Of all citizens When it's time to fight They fight to win!

(Chorus) Hooray! They wear the blue They're tested, tried and true They keep the peace For you and me Hooray! The Police Academy!

(Repeat Chorus)

Mahoney: Hey, somebody forgot to dot the 'i'! Tackleberry: I'll fix it! {Fires rocket launcher} Capt. Harris: Police Academy - The Series


The series is produced by Ruby-Spears Enterprises and is distributed by Warner Bros. Television.

  • Better watch out! Because here they come!

    If there is one of those franchises which everyone has to love for its simplicity and originality, that's Police Academy. Why do you ask? Well, it's quite simple actually: with a cast of memorable characters and a lot of comedy, what's there not to like? The series follows the adventures of 12 of the characters from the film series, such as Mahoney, Jones, Zed, Tackleberry, Hooks, Hightower, among others, as they try to protect the city from crime, using the most unusual methods, always with lots of comedy. A landmark when it comes to animation, because no matter how many times you watch it, you will always want to watch again and again.moreless
